Providing services including those of a qualified professional if there's no Brexit deal

How professions and services will be regulated and the SOLVIT problem solving service will work if the UK leaves the EU with no deal.



If the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 without a deal, find out how this will affect:

  • provisions within the Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) Directive (Directive 2005/36/EC) on the recognition of professional qualifications
  • provisions within the Lawyers’ Establishment Directive (Directive 98/5/EC) and the Lawyers’ Services Directive (Directive 77/249/EEC)
  • provision of Services Regulations (based on changes to the transposed Services Directive 2006/123/EC)
  • the SOLVIT problem solving service

The Audit Directive and the rules on statutory auditors, which provide for recognition of particular qualifications are explained in a separate Technical Notice on accounting and audit.
